There's lots of films and TV series around about vampires. Apart from the rings used in the Vampire Diaries, it's well-known that vampires are sensitive to sunlight.

What I'd like to do is catch a vampire and expose them to hydrogen alpha, calcium K and all sorts of other wavelengths to see which ones vampires are most sensitive to. Perhaps the bandpass of a filter may have some influence on it.

Any answers will be appreciated and my site has a few photos in hydrogen alpha of the Sun and a very small number in a borrowed CaK 'scope:


Incidentally, I'm fairly sure that a vampire could safely look at my solar photos, as they are not real sunlight but just a processed image. However, if their sensitive to sunlight is caused by supernatural forces, then it may be possible that looking at my pictures could harm them. More mortals, however may merely suffer from boredom.
